The women who model for Playboy have a lot of strengths, but topical comedy ain’t one of ‘em. For example, playmate Tricia Evans thought now would be a good time to joke around about the Dark Knight Rises premiere shooting. Yeah, she was wrong.
“I heard the new Batman movie is really ‘to die for’! Too soon?” Tricia wrote on Twitter. If you feel like tweeting Tricia to tell her what a dumbass she is, don’t worry, world-famous DJ Deadmaus took care of that for you. “i seriously had no idea how big of a piece of sh*t you are. unfollowed,” Deadmaus posted in a tweet directed at Tricia. A war of words followed, but the gist is that Tricia thought she’d be the first to joke about a terrible tragedy, without realizing no one else has joked about it for good reason.
Look, Tricia, there are rules about this sort of thing. You might here stand-ups cracking wise about AIDS or 9/11, but people have had time to get used to those things. Also, comedians tend to be funny. If, in 10 years, you wanna make a lame hack joke about James Holmes and the awful sh*t he did in Colorado, maybe people will be a little more forgiving. Probably not, but maybe.
